Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 2,7, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Filmwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Todesbilder in der Kunst , 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Tod als beinahe einziges Mysterium, das noch nicht vom Menschen enträtselt worden ist, hat die Kunst seit Jahrhunderten beschäftigt. In den verschiedensten Medien haben sich Künstler ihre eigenen Vorstellungen vom Tod gemacht. So gibt es Bilder, Lieder, Gedichte und Romane, die sich mit dem Sterben und dem Tod auseinandersetzen. Der Tod als Motiv macht natürlich auch vor den Filmkünstlern nicht halt. Neben den in anderen Künsten bekannten Todesgestalten lassen sich im Film die verschiedensten Todeserfahrungen, Sterbeszenen, Jenseitsfahrten und Todesrituale aufzeigen, die in Variationen auch zu Standardsituationen im Film geworden sind. So setzt sich Jim Jarmusch in seinem Film Dead Man mit dem Sterben eines Mannes und seiner Reise in den Tod auseinander. Schon vor Beginn des Titels weist ein Zitat 1 von Henri Michaux auf den Inhalt des Filmes hin. Im Film selber sind die verschiedensten bekannten Todesbilder, die auch schon andere Künstler z.B. zu deren Bildern inspiriert haben, zu sehen. So gibt es einen Fährmann, den Indianer Nobody, zerstörte Landschaften und Gewalt, welche alle auf das Sterben und den Tod hinweisen. Ziel dieser Hausarbeit ist es die verschiedenen Todesbilder in Dead Man hinsichtlich ihrer Wirkung und Herkunft aufzuzeigen und zu analysieren. [...]

When it was released in 1995, 'Dead man' puzzled many audiences and critics. Jim Jarmusch's reputation was for directing slick, hip contemporary films. And 'Dead man' was a black-and-white Western. As time has passed, though, the number of its admirers has grown considerably. Indeed 'Dead man', with its dark and unconventional treatment of violence, racism and capitalism, may be Jarmusch's finest work to date. This is Jonathan Rosenbaum's view. For him, 'Dead man' is both a quantum leap and a logical next step in Jarmusch's career, and it's a film that speaks powerfully to present-day concerns. Starring Johnny Depp as the uprooted accountant William Blake and Gary Farmer as his enigmatic Native American companion, Nobody, and with startling cameos from Robert Mitchum, John Hurt and Iggy Pop, 'Dead man' is by turns shocking, comic, and deeply moving.

Capitalism has become strange. Ironically, while the 'age of work' seems to have come to an end, working has assumed a total presence – a 'worker's society' in the worst sense of the term – where everyone finds themselves obsessed with it. So what does the worker tell us today? "I feel drained, empty… dead." This book tells the story of the dead man working. It follows this figure through the daily tedium of the office, to the humiliating mandatory team building exercise, to awkward encounters with the funky boss who pretends to hate capitalism and tells you to be authentic. In this society, the experience of work is not of dying...but neither of living. It is one of a living death. And yet, the dead man working is nevertheless compelled to wear the exterior signs of life, to throw a pretty smile, feign enthusiasm and make a half-baked joke. When the corporation has colonized life itself, even our dreams, the question of escape becomes ever more pressing, ever more desperate…

Dead Man's Chest is a classic pirate yarn that begins with long John Silver's escape from the merchantman Hispaniola at Peurta Plata and culminates with the American Revolution more than a decade later. It describes in rich detail the unholy alliance formed between this soft-hearted cut-throut, his teenage nephew, David Noble, and the slaver-turned-merchant captain, John Paul Jones to retrieve a king's ransom of Spanish gold and jewels from Dead Man's Chest; the other two-thirds of the treasure described in Stevenson's novel, and the inspiration for the sailor's ballad by the same name. Dead Man's Chest explains how the Scottish fugitive John Paul Jones earned a naval commission. More importantly, the novel illuminates a hitherto unknown thirty-month period in John Paul's career. From November 1773 when he killed a mutineer to June 1775 when he received his naval commission in Philadelphia from Thomas Jefferson. Learn how the contract that he and John Silver made with the American founding fathers impacted the lives of the Colonists and ultimately helped win America's freedom from Mother England.
